About Grand Hotel Francais, Paris

Stylish, affordable accommodation in eastern Paris

To dine for
The freshly updated Grand Hôtel Français sits just east of Bastille, in an area known for its authentic restaurants. You'll be a 30-minute walk or an easy metro ride (from Nation or Rue des Boulets) from the trendy Marais district.

To die for
Père-Lachaise Cemetery, a 15-minute walk north, is a fascinating city of the dead, with elaborate mausoleums for stars from Chopin to Jim Morrison. For something more lively, the gleaming opera house at Bastille is known for its contemporary operatic and ballet productions.

Haussmann revisited
The friendly, family-owned Grand Hôtel Français is in a recently renovated Haussmannian stone building with wrought-iron balconies. You'll find free WiFi throughout, and free newspapers in the cozy ground-floor bar. Breakfast is served daily in the atmospheric cellar dining room.

Shower in style
Guestrooms are attractively decorated in suave creams and browns, with flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, and blackout drapes. Some corner rooms have wraparound balconies. Brown-tiled bathrooms are particularly stylish, with their hydro-jet baths or walk-in hydro-massage showers.

Grand Hotel Francais, Paris
Great hotel for short stay
Great hotel in Paris. Convenient location near the Nation subway hub. Room small but clean and perfectly fit for the 5 days we stayed. Staff was very helpful nice and friendly. The included breakfast buffet was great, fresh baguette, croissants Yummy! We will definitely go back. Only caveat is the lack of a dresser in the room so we lived out of the suitcase

Perfect for our anniversary
Our stay at the Grand Hotel Francais was great. We loved the easy, accommodating location and attentive staff. You are able to buy many kinds of tickets at the front desk, including the line-skipping tickets. Hotel is located 1 block from one of the metron stops and maybe 10 minute walk to a major metro hub. I would definitely utilize this hotel again in the future.
